What an AMAZING day! I experienced my first and second earthquakes today. The first was a 3.9 and the second was a 3.8.
I am a Midwestern girl, so this is so wild to me. I can honestly say, it's just like the movies. You feel this sudden movement and it takes your mind a second to register that THIS IS AN EARTHQUAKE.
I was sitting at my desk when the first one hit and I immediately called my husband and my momma. When I couldn't get my mother on the line, I texted her and my father. I was waaaay too excited. In fact, my boss was slightly disturbed by how UNdistrubed and excited I was.
Everyone says I should have been preparing to get under a desk, instead of basking in the power of mother nature. And you know what? They are right. If one of those quakes had been the BIG one, I would have wasted critical moments. I would have been too busy trying to absorb it all and determine if it was anything like I imagined it would be when I read accounts of earthquakes as a student.
Anyways... I am thanking God for showing the beauty of his power and his mercy. This was indeed a great and amazing day to me.
Side note: My hair is still straight. I used a goodie ouchless barrette to pull half of it up and I bobbie pinned my bangs behind my ears. It's boring, but a bit of a change up from the sleek straight look.
